Although the causes of halitosis are varied a few factors crop up time and time again as one of the root causes of this embarrassing problem. One of these factors is Xerostomia, other wise known as dry mouth. In this article we are going to look at why having a dry mouth is asking for halitosis to develop and what you can do to try and prevent this cause.

Halitosis is chronic bad breath caused by bacteria in the mouth excreting foul smelling sulphuric waste products therefore anything that we may do, all be it inadvertently, that gives these bacteria a chance to grow is going to contribute to the development of halitosis.

Allowing the mouth to become overly dry is one of these factors. You see bad breath causing bacteria thrive in a dry mouth for a number of reasons. There is less saliva to wash them away but also less saliva to wash away the cell debris the bacteria use as food. This means more food is available for them and for their growth.

The unfortunate thing is that saliva levels naturally decrease with age but this is not helped with many of the actions we take that increase dehydration and thus Xerostomia further. Diuretics like caffeine contained in tea and coffee and diuretics in other substances like alcohol and some medications will all contribute to further dehydration.

It's therefore important that we don't unwittingly exacerbate the problem by using things like alcohol based mouthwashes. These will do nothing but dry out the mouth and make it much easier for halitosis to root.

Instead use an alcohol free antibacterial mouthwash and stay hydrated by drinking the recommended two liters of water each day to avoid becoming a victim to dry mouth, one of the major causes of halitosis.
